The most intense and the fiercely contested rivalry in the game of cricket is believed to be the one between Australia and England, termed Ashes. Cricket Australia (CA) along with England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is all set to give it a more engaging form with a video game as Big Ant Studios is making a game that is set to release in November. The Ashes also is set to start in the same month which implies the game will attract a lot of attention.
The makers have also roped in Glenn Maxwell, the swashbuckling Australian batsman, to promote the game. He was also seen imitating Steve Smith and the sword dance of Ravindra Jadeja. CA had released a video of Maxwell wrapped up all in sensors and imitating the shots played by various cricketers as per the requirements of the creators of the game. The game will also have the women cricketers of both England and Australia which makes it even more unique.
Hi-Tech features of the game
It also features some hi-tech methods which should make the cricket fans even more enthusiastic about it. There are close to 35 HD cameras that are used to capture his movements in a superb 720 frame per second capability. Ross Simons, the CEO of Big Ant was excited about the new features and also said that the players always tell them the feature they loved the most.
“Time and time again players tell us the feature they love most about our cricket games is the deep customisation options. “We have produced a true Ashes cricket game, through and through, but we’ve also made sure that our heritage in sports games remains true,” said Simons as quoted by cricket.com.au.
The game looks interesting and it will be fun to see how other players look and play in the video game. It is set to draw a lot of attention ahead of the upcoming Ashes series which is set to commence from November 22.
